Mozzarella Di Bufala Campana 150g
The origins of this cheese are directly linked to the introduction of buffaloes to Italy: according to one of the most credible suggestions, it was the Norman kings who promoted buffalo farming in Southern Italy, in around 1000 AD, beginning from Sicily, where the animals had been originally introduced by the Arabs. Used initially as working animals, because of their hardy constitution, the buffaloes became valued over time for the quality of their milk.
The term “mozzarella” comes from “mozzare” (to cut off), a process that consists in severing the spun curd with the use of the thumb and forefinger.
The Mozzarella di Bufala Campana is a fresh spun curd cheese whose characteristic features mainly derive from the fresh buffalo milk produced in the area of origin, which is particularly flavourful, digestible and rich in proteins and minerals.
Known for its typical spherical shape (up to 800 g), it can be produced in different sizes, such as morsels, cherries, little eggs, knots and braids (of up to 3 kg), and also in smoked varieties.
if not consumed immediately, Mozzarella di Bufala Campana PDO can be stored in a cool place, kept immersed in its preserving liquid. If placed in the refrigerator, it should be removed ahead of time and served at room temperature, to allow all its flavour to be fully appreciated
